KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - STS-112 Pilot Pamela Melroy signals to someone off camera while behind her other crew members look over the S1 Integrated Truss Structure, part of the payload for the mission to the International Space Station. The S1 truss is the first starboard (right-side) truss segment, whose main job is providing structural support for the orbiting research facility's radiator panels that cool the Space Station's complex power system. The S1 truss segment also will house communications systems, external experiment positions and other subsystems. The S1 truss will be attached to the S0 truss. Launch of STS-112 is scheduled for Aug. 22, 2002. (Photo Release Date: 06/15/2002 )
